    I currently study psychology sociology and English language in my last year of college. I’ve not fully decided what I want to study for university but I know I want it to be along the lines of dentistry/ pharmaceuticals/ pharmacy/ physician associate...

    Clearly my choice of alevels aren’t appropriate I have considered in taking a foundation year but not many unis do foundation years near Manchester. So alternatively I thought about doing 2 hard science alevels in a gap year.

    I’m wondering if this is manageable? Or if there’s any cheap places I could study the two like a home school or something

    You need to check with dentistry about entrance requirements and sitting all three in the same sitting. I know its done for Medicine, but check for Dentistry as I think it varies from uni to uni,


    If you can get the grades for foundation then you could do that with a guaranteed place in and no resits.

    Science A levels are hard to do privately because theres the practical aspect.

    You can do distance learning and that way do your own pace.

    Think it might be Chemistry and Biology.
